Tyreek Hill Fantasy Football News 2019

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with his collarbone injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That timetable would have him back as early as Week 6 or as late as Week 8. Kansas City's bye isn't until Week 12. We'd hang on to Hill in all fantasy leagues. He should return to WR1 status as soon as he's back on the field. WR Sammy Watkins and TE Travis Kelce will get target boosts with Hill out. We like rookie Mecole Hardman to be the 2nd most productive Chiefs WR, with Demarcus Robinson as the #3.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (clavicle) "will likely" avoid IR, according to the Kansas City Star's Sam Mellinger. The report adds that there's "no defined timetable quite yet" for Hill's return. He's still looking at a multi-week absence, but the IR would have cost Hill at least 8 weeks. We'll continue to keep an eye on his status.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that the Chiefs are still evaluating WR Tyreek Hill's injury, with "options ranging from missing a few games to IR/designated to return." The latter move would knock Hill out until at least Week 10. We'll stay on top of the situation, but Chiefs WRs Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson are both worth adding off waiver wires this week.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill does not need surgery on his injured shoulder but is expected to miss "a few weeks," ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Chiefs head trainer Rick Burkholder revealed that Hill is dealing with a sternal clavicular joint injury. It sounds like fantasy owners should prepare to be without him until at least Week 5. Hill's absence elevates WR Sammy Watkins to the top of the Chiefs' depth chart. Demarcus Robinson and rookie Mecole Hardman are next in line and are worth speculative adds in deeper fantasy leagues.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill had to go to the hospital to have his shoulder injury treated by the trauma department, according to insider B.J. Kissel. We don't yet have other details regarding Hill's injury or how long he'll be sidelined, but it doesn't sound like this is minor. We'll update Hill's status as we learn more.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill hurt his shoulder in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game in Jacksonville and is officially questionable to return. Stay tuned for an update.

Update: Hill has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

The Chiefs and WR Tyreek Hill have agreed to a 3-year, $54 extension, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hill is now signed with Kansas City through the 2022 campaign and is among the top 3 highest-paid WRs in the league. It's a serious commitment from the Chiefs to a guy with major off-field concerns. The extension is certainly good news for Hill's dynasty value.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill was in pads and with the team for the start of Friday's practice, according to BJ Kissel of the team website. Hill hadn't practiced since sustaining a bruised quad in Tuesday's workout. He's good to go now, though, and never moved in our rankings.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill left Tuesday's practice with an apparent right leg injury, according to The Athletic's Nate Taylor. We'll keep an eye out for more on the situation.

Update: ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that it’s merely a bruised quad and that the team expects Hill to be “fine."

The league will not discipline Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill over the assault allegations he faced this offseason, according to multiple reports. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the NFL has found no evidence that Hill abused his son. "It will leave open case if further evidence emerges, but Hill is free to report to camp, practice and play this season," Schefter tweeted. That clears Hill for 16 games, barring further evidence emerging. Hill had already climbed to Round 4 of best-ball drafts and could make his way into the 3rd or even 2nd round of drafts now. He belongs in that range. His cleared status helps QB Patrick Mahomes, lowers the target ceiling for WR Sammy Watkins and should push rookie WR Mecole Hardman to the fringes of 2019 redraft.

The Athletic's Nate Taylor hears that Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill's meeting with the NFL on Wednesday was "successful." Hill reportedly provided the league with "a massive amount of evidence to support his testimony." The Chiefs still expect a suspension for Hill, with 1 source predicting "a maximum of 4 games," according to Taylor. We're sticking with our projection of 12 games for Hill for now and will continue to keep a close eye on the situation. Hill's ADP is sitting in the mid-5th round in drafts over the past week.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill will meet with the NFL about his child-abuse allegations on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Hill won't face legal charges, but that won't necessarily stop the league from handing him a suspension. Hopefully we'll get clarity on Hill's 2019 status soon. He's gone in the mid-5th round in fantasy drafts over the past 2 weeks.

Kevin Kietzman of 810 WHB in Kansas City reports that neither Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill nor his fiancee broke their son's arm. Investigators "quickly agreed with medical staff that the broken bone was the result of typical accident involving a rambunctious toddler, consistent with reaching out to brace for a fall," according to Kietzman, who cited "multiple sources close to the investigation. This doesn't necessarily mean Hill is clear of potential discipline under the NFL personal-conduct policy. But this version of events would sure seem to save Hill's 2019 outlook. He's certainly worth a shot at what figures to remain depressed ADPs in current fantasy football drafts. And we'll all be watching this situation closely through the summer.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that, "barring further developments," Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill is expected to re-join the team by the start of training camp. This comes after the Johnson County District Attorney told the Kansas City Star that the child-abuse investigation into Hill is not an active investigation. Pelissero notes that the league could still place Hill on the Commissioner's Exempt List, which would prohibit him from team activities. And, of course, Hill is still subject to a suspension from the league. So his 2019 status remains murky, but it at least sounds like he's still part of Kansas City's plans. That's good news for his dynasty value.
